    As parents, observing our children's habits can often lead to curiosity and concern. One such common habit is kids biting on straws. But why do they do it? In this guide, we'll explore the reasons behind this behavior and how Avanchy's safe, eco-friendly cups and straws can be a part of the solution.

    Understanding the Straw-Biting Habit

    Children bite on straws for various reasons. It could be a part of sensory exploration, a way to soothe teething gums, or simply a habit developed over time. Sometimes, it's their way of focusing or coping with sensory overload.

    The Sensory Aspect

    For many children, biting on a straw provides sensory feedback. It can be calming for those who are sensory seekers. This is especially common in toddlers who are still exploring their world through taste and texture.

These products are designed keeping in mind the safety and sensory needs of children.
